Half of last week's opposition, Nexus Media, cried off sick, leaving Johnson King to duke it out with Diary's boys.
Ever magnanimous, the PRWeek quintet leaked six goals early on in a period notable only for the dark looks appearing on certain team members' faces.
It's worth pointing out that the journalists had no substitutes, and 'early doors' this was telling.
Stoical in the face of the opposition, however, stood senior reporter Tom Williams, holding back the tide of JK attacks. As he launched himself into his umpteenth crunching challenge, he managed to knock himself out. A lesser man would have called for an ambulance. Williams asked where he was, dusted himself down, and chased around like a lunatic again. Diary can confirm that the next morning Williams was 'sick as a parrot'.
